Paw It Forward- Tabby Tattletale Tuesday

So Cory started to fill you in on what's been going on here.  See, turns out our furriends treat us better than our very own mom and dad.   The only thing stopping us from reporting them to the ASPCA is that we still love them.  Even with all their faults and failings.   It started out before Christmas.  We got a box in the mail (which was not Christmas presents AT ALL!) and mom wouldn't let us open until Christmas.  It was clearly for "Paw it Forward", but mom said we had ::gasp:: plenty of toys and we could ::shudder:: wait.

When we finally got to open the box, it was from our furriends Ernie and Wally and Zoey, The Island Cats!
Ellie was beside herself with joy, and rubbed on their letter before diving into the box filled with amazing goodies!

There were treats and toys and a blankie sprinkled with  nip!

Ellie zeroed in on her most favorite toy in the world.  Foam soccer balls!  She carries them around and meows and drops them down the stairs and plays fetch with herself.  She is easily amused.

Cory helped mom discover our magnet that states we are official Honorary Island Cats.  Whoa.  We don't even live on an island.  Is that legal?

Mom found a cube that was stuffed in a little box.  It popped open right away and since we have been deprived cats (yes our mom has NEVER bought us one of these) we didn't know what to do with it at first.  Mom put our toys in there to give us a hint.

Ellie jumped right in.

So did Figaro. 
So did everyone.
It's so popular, that one of us is always in it.

Bennette saw an opportunity when everyone was preoccupied with the cube...she snagged the blankie for herself.  She's a smart one.
Our thoughtful furriends didn't forget Grete woofie.  She got a beautiful girlie toy and a yummy biscuit.

She gave the biscuit a lick...and within 2 minutes of this photo being taken, Grete ate it all.  She loved it!

Yowsa!  Now that was fun. 
Thank you Ernie, Wally and Zoey...and the yellow haired lady!

Okay, now it’s our turn to have fun pawing it forward. We’re looking for one cat or dog blogger that comment here saying you wanna participate in Paw It Forward. We’ll send you something fun, inspiring or uplifting. In turn, you’ll post about this on your blog, link to us, and then send something to up to three cat or dog bloggers that sign up to play along with you. There’re no cost restraints, BUT don’t go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness doesn’t have to involve money; there’re a lot of ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go. Keep the fun going and let us know if you wanna Paw It Forward!!!

The ZH is saying that within our wonderful cat blogging community everyone "paws it forward" every day with care and concern, purrs and prayers, visits and comments.
It's quite a wonderful thing isn't it ... she says we can't paw it with gifts at this time, but we're pawing it forward with love to all.

MoMo said...

That's a lot of goodies!! Have fun!!!

We can't participate just now as SS is jobless and we have to live on a tight budget.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Wonderful gifts! Getting those packages in the mail is just awesome!!!

We see that you already have several candidates to play Paw it Forward with. We're always up for a game but are happy to wait for the next round!

Purrs,
The Chans
